Abstract: Substances discharged intobodies of water must be studied due to possible risk of contamination and consequent damage to nature and human health.Sucralose is an artificial sweetener widely used to produce diet food and beverage. Most of this substance is expelled intact fromthe human body; therefore, its concentration in rivers and wastewaters is increasing worldwide. In this work, sucralose degradation was performed using advanced oxidation processes (AOPs): peroxidation assisted by ultraviolet radiation (H2O2/UV), Fenton’s reagent (Fe(II)/H2O2/H+), and photo-Fenton (Fe(II)/H2O2/H+/UV). Mineralization of the sweetener was measured usingtotal organic carbon (TOC). In addition, AOPs were applied to different water matrices, such as ultrapure, synthetic, and surface waters. Experiments were performed to evaluate the toxicity of the solution during the degradation processes
